(3) Excludes records with unknown data or errors.
(4) Rank compares this contributor's rate to other contributors. Rank 1 = best rate.
(5) Infants born during the reporting period included in the analysis.
(6) Based on 2006 WHO growth chart percentiles for children under 2 years of age; short stature is defined as and length-for-age <= 2.3rd percentile, underweight is defined as weight-for-length <= 2.3rd percentile, and high weight-for-length (labeled as "Obese") is defined as >= 97.7th percentile.
(7) Based on 2000 CDC growth chart percentiles for children 2 years of age and older; short stature is defined as height-for-age < 5th percentile, underweight is defined as BMI-for-age < 5th percentile, overweight is defined as BMI-for-age >= 85th to < 95th percentile, and obesity is defined as >= 95th percentile.
(8) Based on 1998 CDC MMWR, "Recommendations to Prevent and Control Iron Deficiency in the United States", altitude adjusted, children 6 months of age and older included in the analysis.
* Percentages are not calculated if < 100 records are available for analysis after exclusions.
